The KIF Prize is awarded annually to raise awareness about the importance of women in physics. The prize should help identify female physicists as role models at universities as well as at high schools and in society and business.
My name is Maren Malling, and I am the new chairwoman of KIF. I want to share with you who I am and what my background is.
Professor Kristine Niss from Roskilde University will give her prize acceptance talk, during which she will present her research and highlights from her career path.
Join us for an afternoon of physics quiz, glögg and æbleskiver - plus our special guest speaker Bjørn Franck Jørgensen who will give talk on how astronomy has influenced the ancient cultures of the world, and through that, our modern-day lives and traditions.
The theme for this year's annual meeting was "The Role of Role Models". It was held at Geological Museum at Copenhagen University on Wednesday the 10th of October 2018.
